And, if I remember correctly, this game was out for like 99 cents for the first 2 days or something. :P

yes, me
as a shooter fan, i immediatly had to buy it.
BUT the controls are noooot good.
accelerometer controls are way too lame
and touch controls are also a bit strange....

grafics are nice, great retro-shooter feeling.
hope for a controller update.
then i'm sure to enjoy this game alot.

Ya know, that really sucks!

I love these space shooter style games and I can't believe someone hasn't got it right yet, I mean c'mon!

Graphics look superb, old school style with lots of power ups but please PLEASE fix the controls for cryin out LOUD!

At the moment I would say, no.
But if the controls are becoming better, what i really hope, then hell yes!!
Grafics are great, weapons look awesome, big end bosses (did it to level 4 so far). But I really hate the controls, too slow when tilting, to fast when touching. But perhaps, it's just me complaining about. But I'm also sure it will get cheaper very soon

I really LOVE Shmups but I'm waiting for a price drop on this one.
There are hardly any decent shmups out there, Tilt Fighter, Deadly Space and Space Mania, they all suck.

It has a price drop. The video on youTube looks good, but the enemies seem to be a bit repetive. Of course, the controls must do the work... Should I buy it for 2,99 US$ or wait for other shooters like Centipede? I currently own 2069 and Chopper and Blue Skies and Missile Command and like all of them for the style, graphics, gameplay and controls.

Yeah I was just notified by Appsniper that this has dropped.
I'm going to buy this (I'm just a sucker for shmups) and then I will post my impressions here.
